Bobcat Day

Let us show you what makes Texas State so special! At Bobcat Day, you'll explore our beautiful campus, as well as get information about academics, financial aid, housing and more. Our open house gives you opportunities to mingle with faculty, staff and student representatives from across campus for an inside look on what being a Bobcat is all about.

Opportunities for you to get to know Texas State include:

  • Information sessions about our academic majors and programs
  • Guided campus walks and on-your-own visits to all of our residence halls
  • Academic Majors & Student Services Fair, where you can talk one-on-one with our knowledgeable faculty, staff and student representatives from a wide variety of programs and services including academics, financial aid and scholarships, and housing

While we fully expect to resume on-campus Bobcat Days when possible, virtual versions of the event will be available online in October and November

Online Bobcat Days

Until we are able to once again safely welcome large groups of visitors on our campuses, our signature open house event has gone virtual! At an Online Bobcat Day, you'll be able to explore what Texas State has to offer from anywhere. There will be informative video presentations, as well as live interactive sessions. You'll even be able to explore our campuses through student-guided virtual tours.
